They are used in some countries overseas, the measure the start & stop point of a stretch of road, giving "average speed"
Don't think we have any yet.

I'm quite intreagued by this option under speed for a particular road. From the reading on other forums, the best I can gather is that maybe this is used to determine the speed of the road, based on the average speed of people travelling on it (GPS tracks I assume?) - it actually has nothing to do with Speed Cameras?

Or, is it related to the new tech speed cameras which take a numberplate photo at one point and at another point and calculate the driver's average speed? https://www.leicestermercury.co.uk/news ... rk-1149790

Am I thinking right? What would be a circumstance when we would use this for editing?

So, when they happen in NZ (I think they are going to happen according to news articles I've heard) - a stretch of road with these on them, we would mark with that checkbox, I guess...
